HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội FC striker Ganiyu Bolayi Oseni may miss the second leg of the AFC Cup’s ASEAN Zonal semi-finals because of injury.

Oseni suffered a leg injury during the first leg match against Ceres Negros of the Philippines on Tuesday and was substituted in the 75th minute.

A team doctor said he could not move without crutches and would undergo an intensive check later.

“Oseni’s absence will strongly affect our playing style in the coming match. We have to work out a replacement,” said coach Chu Đình Nghiêm.

The Nigerian striker is the second top scorer at the AFC Cup with nine goals, one less than Ceres Negros’s Bienvenido Maranón.

The second leg will be at Hàng Đẫy Stadium in Hà Nội on June 25. Hà Nội just need a 0-0 draw to advance to the zonal final. — VNS
